Added a comment about news blog WiggleCRC Looking at £100m Takeover of German Rival Bike24 10/22/2017 3:28 PM

WiggleCRC enjoyed sales of £283m last year, and made underlying earnings of about £7m

Is that correct? That's a 2.5% profit margin. No wonder bike shops are having a hard time. Nobody can survive on those margins unless you are turning over tens of millions.

I guess the plate mount looks cool, but it looks over engineered to me. I hold a disposable plate on with 3 cable ties and it only has to last for a weekend. Also I run different numbers all season...what then? Do I have to buy stick on numbers like in MX. A solution to a problem that didn't need solving maybe.

Forget the cassette, I want to know what happened to Nate. Did he get married and live happily ever after?

You included my a few of my favorites in your original list: 1) Ride more 2) Brake less 3) Brake lever angle/bar setup To add to this I would say it's how you brake that has a big effect. Brake hard and less often. Don't drag your brakes over braking ... more »

Honestly, I don't think Danny has looked comfortable on the 29er all year. After dominating the latter part of 2016, why change things? You have to respect Gwin for having the confidence to stick to 27.5.
